University seeks input on potential replacements for Blackboard Learn

JHU has launched a comprehensive process to select a replacement for Blackboard Learn, the university's primary learning management system.

When Blackboard was first implemented at JHU in 2010, fully online programs and smartphones were brand new. The university's needs have grown significantly in the past 10 years, and the replacement LMS must be flexible enough to be an effective tool for many years to come.

The selection process will be guided by an LMS Steering Committee, convened by the Office of the Provost and including representation from divisional leaders, faculty, and students. This committee will request feedback and input from the broader community of faculty, staff, and students in the coming weeks to choose a replacement LMS that will enhance all modes of learning for now and in the future. The committee will use a variety of data collection methods to gather stakeholder input, including surveys, in-depth interviews, and hands-on testing.

The School of Public Health's CoursePlus will continue to be maintained by that division and will not be affected by this process.
